That’s how Cleveland quintet Window Dogs introduces their latest single, “Go Outside”. Cheekily, the band brings in peppy hi-hat hits as the guitar flutters on. Captivatingly wordy, the song starts to truly build as the vocals come onto the scene.
Before you know it, Window Dogs toss that fluttering guitar out the window and hit a raucous nerve with the declarations of, “I wanna go outside today”. As the track wobbles through quiet moments and loud crescendos, the atypical song structure really shines. The whole time, a feeling of uneasiness stirs in the listener, surely intentional on the bands part.
“Go Outside” speaks volumes. For what can be incorrectly boiled down to just a four minute rock number, the track carries a heavy weight of emotion – an emotion that everyone can comprehend – “I just wanna get away from the walls in this place, it always feels like suffocating”.
Window Dogs will be celebrating the release of “Go Outside” on December 1st at Mahall’s 20 Lanes in Lakewood, OH. More info here.
